Paul & Joe Creamy Cheek Powder 01 – Marionette

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 19 - 2010

I couldn’t resist picking up the Paul & Joe Creamy Cheek Powder in 01 – Marionette last week in the ASOS sale… it was down from £18 to £11 – steal!

This post is a bit picture heavy… simply because it’s so pretty and I got my new camera and I couldn’t stop snapping.

It’s a lovely flushed pink shade that manages to be bright but gentle all at the same time.

I was hugely confused by the product name… ‘Creamy Cheek Powder’… is it a cream? is it a powder? Talk about hedging your bets P&J!

Well… it’s a cream that dries to a powder finish.  I usually find these a little harder to work with than normal cream blushes and you do have to work a little quicker with this one to avoid any hard edges.  Once you realise this, it’s not a problem at all and the formulation ensures that it stays put for many hours through the day.

The above picture shows 3 swipes.  It’s a sheer but extremely buildable blush that would be hard to overdo on even the palest of skins.

I notice that ASOS still have one of the shades (the other one I was eyeing up!) on sale but my cream blush collection is now starting to expand to epic proportions and I think it might be time I rein myself in (yeah right).

Which blush formula do you prefer?  Cream, Powder or Liquid?

    Aww, how cute! I used to love this type of blusher, but recently, it’s just like…. if I wanted a powder finish, I would have used a powder blush! 😛
